Matar Aloo Balls | Easy 15 min Breakfast

I love these little matar aloo balls for breakfast or even snack. These are so easy to make that too under 15 mins. Matar/peas season is on its peak. I like to add peas to a variety of my food as the sweetness tastes so good.


One such recipes is Matar aloo balls. You must have heard peas and potato go well with each other. So why not enjoy with some deep fried yummy snack/ breakfast.These balls are crispy from outside. And garlic-y soft from inside. And best part your kids will be fighting for more.

Some important points to know before we start with recipe-

  1. I have used hard boiled potatoes which were kept in refrigeration for one day. This is important as freshly boiled potato won’t hold its shape well enough to form balls. Also they have more moisture.
  2. I have grated the potato’s using grater and NOT mashed them. Reason being that its evenly grated and no lumps. Its not so important. BUT. Since potato are now hard enough it helps.
  3. I have used fresh peas and boiled them till cooked. Frozen peas also work fine.
  4. Mashed the peas slightly so that there is still bite into that sweet pea.
